The Top 15 Albums EVER In Christian Music

A Listmania! list by Flap Jackson "Sky Is Burning, But At Least We Know We're Warm." (Boone, NC)
The list author says: "After reading a feature in JFH today, I decided to add my two cents in the matter. What are the 15 greatest albums, EVER in Christian music? Should it be the ones that were most groundbreaking? Most inspirational? Best quality? Most originality? I choose all the above...

Unfortunetly, the Amazon List system isn't the brightest in the world, so I couldn't find...

2. Relient K: The Creepy EP (2001):
With a few of their early pop/punk songs, 'Creepy' will send chills down your back while listening to "Softer To Me," and you'll be blown away by this version of "Jefferson Airplane." And best of all, it's all such raw talent from one of the greatest bands, EVER.

and...

4. Capital Lights: This Is An Outrage! (2008):
I cannot say enough positive things about this album. It absolutely prefects pop/rock music to new forms of awesomenest not even thought about before this album.

and...

Honorable Mention: Relient K: The Bird and The Bee Sides (2008)"
Mmhmm
1.  Mmhmm by Relient K
The list author says:
  "1. Relient K: Mmhmm (2004):
When I first heard this CD, it totally changed the way I looked at rock and music in general, and since I had never heard a Relient K album before this one, I simply couldn't put it down, for months. The record changed me personally, made Relient K my favorite ban, and I love it so much, I got the vinyl version, courtesy of NRT."

Jesus Freak
3.  Jesus Freak by dc Talk
The list author says:
  "5. dc Talk: Jesus Freak (1995):
Purely 90s in style, but timeless in its lyrics, it united a generation of self-proclaimed Jesus Freaks. I mean, how many albums can say that they labeled a generation?"

Word of Mouth
4.  Word of Mouth by John Reuben
The list author says:
  "6. John Reuben: Word of Mouth (2007):
Unparraled lyrics for a rap album that are both socially conscious and fun, Reuben also delivers the freshest beats with his sandwiches."

Almost There Platinum Edition
5.  Almost There Platinum Edition by MercyMe
The list author says:
  "7. MercyMe: Almost There (2001):
A Christian pop classic; it's all about God with their thoughtful lyrics, great music, and universal sound. And who could ever forget about one of most inspirational Christian songs ever, "I Can Only Imagine.""

Jars of Clay
6.  Jars of Clay by Jars Of Clay
The list author says:

Mixing haunting rock and the foundations for Christian pop as we know it, "Liquid" still gives me chills after all these years."

Stanley Climbfall
7.  Stanley Climbfall by Lifehouse
The list author says:
  "9. Lifehouse: Stanley Climbfall (2003):
If "No Name Face" bore modern rock as we know it, then "Stanley Climbfall" perfected it. It's still one of the most consistent records I've ever heard."

A Collision
8.  A Collision by David Crowder*Band
The list author says:
  "10. David Crowder Band: A Collision (2005):
Ambitious to the hilt, and a concept record to boot, upon first listenings you might be polarized, but the artistry really shines through nowadays."

Sound of Melodies
9.  Sound of Melodies by Leeland
The list author says:
  "11. Leeland: Sound of Melodies (2006):
Breathing new life into the stale worship genre, Leeland crafted beautiful worship songs, while keeping the praise tracks and you moving. "Sound of Melodies" is still as good as it was on day 1."

Live the Life
10.  Live the Life by Michael W. Smith
The list author says:
  "12. Michael W. Smith: Live The Life (1998):
There's a noticeable difference between this album and Smitty's work before and after. In this album, he went into the contemporary sound, but it was some of the best Christian pop put out at that time. He never sounded better; check "Missing Person" for proof."

Letters to the President
11.  Letters to the President by Hawk Nelson
The list author says:
  "13. Hawk Nelson: Letters To The President (2004):
Pop/punk goodness wrapped in challenging lyrics, this album doesn't aspire to be much, but it meets its goals, and exceeds them."

12.  Fly Away by Paul Wright
The list author says:
  "14. Paul Wright: Fly Away (2003):
It's been quite a while since I first discovered this album, but let me say, this album still hangs tide. Catchy grooves from reggae to rap, pop to surf, this album is perfect for a beach party."

13.  Five Score & Seven Years Ago by Relient K
